Have you tried Multi-Masking yet? It's the perfect way to multi-task with your skincare.
It is the brilliant combination of using more than one type of face mask at the same time on different areas, to target the various skin types or conditions that may be present at one time.
Using a face mask is a really effective weekly technique to give your skin an intense hit of either hydration, anti-ageing ingredients, oil balancing ingredients or blemish fighting ingredients. This helps to make the skin more managable throughout the week, improve the condition and become more normalised long term.
When using face masks it is really important to you use the correct mask for your skin type. Covering your face with one face mask when you have differing skin concerns in different areas can be making your skin worse. The most common example I see is deep cleansing clay masks being used on dry skin. Most clay masks are to help oily and blemish prone skin become less oily by drawing the excess oil (Sebum) out of the pores. Dry skin is already so parched, it needs to keep any Sebum it may have to keep the skin hydrated. Also, combination skin types are usually dry on the cheeks and oily in the T-zone, so covering the whole face with a clay mask is not going to help the dry patches.
If you have combination skin why not try using a clay mask on your T-zone to draw out excess oil, we love the Decleor Black Clay Mask. Then you could apply a more hydrating mask to your drier cheek area.
For oily skin that has blemished cheeks and chin area, you could use a blemish clearing mask on those areas and a clay mask on your T-zone to minimse Sebum production. A mix of the Decleor Black Clay Mask & Natura Siberica White Purifying Mask would work well.
If you are normal to dry my favourite combination is a super hydrating face mask such as the Decleor Oil Mask on the areas of severe dryness (the oil mask is a beautiful cream to oil texture and can be work overnight too). Then you can apply an anti-ageing mask on any areas of concern such as the forehead & neck. I love the Omorovicza Midnight Radiance Mask, it's brightening and pulmping with Hyaluronic Acid.
If you are normal to dry and also have blemishes in areas you could use a hydarting mask on your more clear, drier areas and a blemish clearing mask on the congested areas. The Natura Siberica White Purifying Face Mask would work well here because it's smoothing as well as blemish clearing.
